Topps announcement regarding Tribute to the Stars Autographed Cards
 
Today, Topps launched the highly anticipated 2012 Topps Tribute Baseball into the hobby.

Topps originally solicited that the TRIBUTE TO THE STARS AUTOGRAPH insert would appear in sealed boxes as an incremental hit. The card is in[COLOR=#1f497d] [/COLOR]product, but was not delivered as an incremental hit.

Topps is encouraging collectors that opened a sealed box of 2012 Topps Tribute Baseball and received a TRIBUTE TO THE STARS AUTOGRAPHED CARD to send the card to Topps to receive a pack of 2011 Bowman Sterling Baseball (2 Autographs and 1 Relic).

Each card will be verified (via sequential numbering) and can only be submitted once. The card will be returned with the pack of Bowman Sterling..

Collectors mailing in their cards should send to:

The Topps Company
Sports & Entertainment
Attn: Customer Support 6th Floor
1 Whitehall Street
New York, New York 10004-2109

This offer will expire March 9, 2013

Pretty cool deal. Also pretty cool they're giving it a year

phabphour20 03-10-2012 11:52 AM

Agreed. Anybody cheap you can buy on eBay?

Great idea. Any one under $40 would be worth it because that's the value of a sterling pack.

WhacksPacks 03-10-2012 12:06 PM

Most are going over 100

mikecancelliere 03-10-2012 12:06 PM

Yea they should settle down in a week or so. They'll probably settle around $60 but if you can pick one up around $40 it's good

phabphour20 03-10-2012 12:18 PM

This is going to end badly on eBay. People redeeming the pack and then selling the card...

Will have to do it within 2 weeks to not risk it, turn around should be about that before the used ones are back in peoples hands.

Nice of Topps to still do this though. Thats alot of man hours, postage and sterling packs for free.

Two week turnaround would be great but knowing Topps who knows

Or they could just follow the sell sheet THEY set up. If I wanted Bowman Sterling ID BUY Bowman Sterling.

phabphour20 03-10-2012 12:27 PM

I agree. Nice of them. They did advertise them as extra hits though.

Need to snatch the autos up in the next few weeks I think.

uberfatty 03-10-2012 12:38 PM

I got the Mike Schmidt #/9 that finished. Probably overpaid but I think it's a $70 card without the Sterling pack. Who knows what these will settle at though given the risk after a couple weeks that the card is recycled already.

natbornkiller 03-10-2012 02:13 PM

so they are sending a $30-35 pack for yet another topps screw up
please note it will cost you around 4-5 bucks to ship to them
and the pack is going to contain mainly 2 99 cent autos and if lucky a 99 cent jersey

mikecancelliere 03-10-2012 05:01 PM

Plus the pack is in place of a hit that could have been well over $30

aggies1960 03-11-2012 10:35 PM

what about the matt kemp card, his is a redemption. Do you think topps will place a sticker on it once its redeemed or is there a chance it will come back on card?

Srt42004n 03-11-2012 10:38 PM

Heres an idea, Redeem it then send the voucher in. When you get the redeemed card send that in as well
